It was a busy and productive Thursday in Tokyo as three America teams held court. At Shiokaze Park, Kelly Claes and Sarah Sponcil overwhelmed Kenyans Brackcides Khadambi and Gaudencia Makokha 21-8, 21-6 in the morning’s first match.

At 11 a.m. local, Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena overcame a sluggish start to defeat Argentina’s Nicolas Azaad and Nicolas Capogrosso 21-19, 18-21, 15-6.

And later in the evening, the USA women defeated Turkey in five sets 25-19, 25-20, 17-25, 20-25, 15-12 with Annie Drews coming in at opposite and contributing 10 kills.
